Despite my love of the comic book scene and numerous conventions, I am so out of my element when it comes to most of the Anime stuff like “Cowboy Bebop” which will be getting its own live-action series in the coming months on the Netflix Streaming service. The first visual of the series is presented below along with some light premise and casting so please enjoy.

The Premise: A ragtag crew of bounty hunters chases down the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll save the world – for the right price. (c/o IMDB)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While this was only the opening credits, it reminded me of the cop shows that I grew up on and that made it a whole lot more fun for me. I really like actor John Cho and hope that this is a winner for the streaming service because the success of one show like this might lead to other properties being given a chance. Maybe I will find some time to take a look at some of the now vintage anime stuff but who knows when that can happen. What about you readers? Are you on the ball when it comes to this property and what are your hopes for the series? Chime in down below and please remember to be safe out there as we still have a pandemic to deal with. See you next time.
